Hey guys, this is technically the germination period for my plants they have not gone into their medium(FFOF soil) yet. Super excited to finally get growing and couldn’t be happier to be using some genetics from ETHOS provided by weedguardians family tree seedbank. Service was great from both companies! I will be using fox farm base nutrients and some additives as well as some products from advanced nutrients and general hydroponics as I have seen some great results with these companies before. My knowledge of the cannabis plant is intermediate. I have done some small operations in the past but this will be my for at solo run. For that reason I have tons to learn and will be doing lots of experimentation and observation throughout this grow. Your comments are welcomed and appreciated!!! I’m always looking to learn there’s so many talented growers on this site alone it’s amazing. Happy growing and stay tuned I’ll be adding all the tutorials I’m using and tips that have been given to me from others so keep watching the page for updates!!!

Grow Questions
ccthefarmer week 4 started grow question 2 years ago
So as y’all can see she absolutely exploded between this week and last, her growth nearly doubled in size. This caught me off guard I’ve been pretty busy. Now that she’s so big would you say it’s too late to top or mainline and in that case should I LST?

Its not to late for LST, you just have to be careful, because the stems look very sturdy. Your plants growing very dense , with ashort internode, i think your lights can be to close. But the one you want to apply LST looks very good for that. You can go on until end of week 2 of flower with your training. Start slow with the mainstem.
ccthefarmer week 7 started grow question 2 years ago
So I’ve seen a lot of people grow the strains I have in my garden right now with lots of colors. I’m in week 3 of flower and I have the slightest of fade but basically I’m all green. Which has been a pattern. Nothing wrong with that but any suggestions to boost color? Temp? Food?

Hi @ccthefarmer not all plants gain these colors, depending on the phenotype and genetics of the plants some gain darker and purple tones and other plants do not. Female plants only change colors around 6-7 weeks of flowering, a factor that helps this color change is an environment with lower temperatures around 18 ° c. But there is nothing to do, your plants look healthy and happy, certainly in the last weeks of flowering the buds will gain beautiful tones and colors. good luck mate :+1:

Yellowing/ leaves dying
Beginning of week 4 flower and my girl is losing bottom leaves faster than I’ve ever seen. They are yellowing and falling off quicker than I think is healthy. However I also have burnt tips so it shouldn’t be due to underfeed. Rootbound maybe? Let me know

Good look'n plants dude but I do believe you may have id'd something needs to be rectified. Couple things here but my answer could easily change if I knew what kind of medium you're using (soil or soiless?).

If it's not the light combined with the camera flash, the leaves on these plants look a little pale to me which, in combination with excessive yellowing of lower growth would suggest a slight nitrogen deficiency. Additionally, looks like a little rust spotting in one of those photos and that's a textbook calmag deficiency. Your only 1 week removed from the stretch so it's a good bet that these girls were absolutely devouring all the nitrogen and calmag they could find. While your nute mix ratios look good, I'd probably start by supplementing some calmag first and maybe dial back your nitro heavy veg. nute slower than recommended - give her a little extra N at this point than normal just to add some additional stores for the remaining weeks. Good news is that if it is deficient it's really not that bad and likely won't impact overall plant performance through flowering. Best of luck for the flower show dude:+1:

I used Fox Farm Ocean Forest on my 1st grow. Beware!!! Good possibility that soil contains predator mites. The bag I purchased did. It's not labeled on the bag and almost cost me my crop as I thought I had root aphids, and was a temper tantrum away from throwing a lot match in my tent. It wasn't until I accepted the challenge to vanquish those critters that I learned they are little soil warriors.

@The_Stonedbaker, yeah I’ve had a lot of good experiences with their products in my time in Colorado, really excited to finally get to grow my own. I have some other things I’m running from them I’ll be sure to try and add photos as well just for reference! Thanks!
